  • Curve3 and Caldera v9.1

    Chromix Curve3

    In the beginning of May we notified customers of the long anticipated release of Chromix Curve3 was indeed now available.
    Shortly after some of the customers who upgraded to Curve3 reported issues importing the CGAT file exported from Curve3. Specifically we noticed these calls from Caldera VisualRIP+ and Caldera GrandRIP+ v9 customers.

    We looked into the issue and noticed a small change in one field. Editing this singular data field allows the CGAT file to again be imported into Caldera v9 RIP.

    QUICK FIX:

    1. Open the exported Curve3 data file in spreadsheet editor, using tab separated eliminator. You can also use a text editor as long as the formatting is retained and not changed to .rtf
    2. Find the data field "SAMPLE_NAME" and update to "SAMPLENAME"
    3. Save data file again using tab delimited export from the spreadsheet editor
    4. You can now import in Caldera v9.1.x Build 130424 or earlier

    Caldera GrandRIP+ v9.1

    PERMANENT RESOLUTION:

    This week Caldera released an update to address this small incompatibility. There has been numerousCaldera v9.1 RIP updates this year. Be proactive and backup your system before updating and applying Caldera patches.

    • If you are using Caldera v9.1x with Curve2 -- compatible, no update required, still supported in build 130607 or later
    • If you are using Caldera v9.1x with Curve3 -- should upgrade to build 130607 or later which supports updated Curve3 formatting. Download update from Caldera User area from http://usernet.caldera.com/

  • X-Rite Discontinues Old Spectrodensitometers

    X-Rite

    X-Rite, one of the leaders in color matching hardware, has decided to make the move to drop a large selection of spectrodensitometers from their product portfolio. This move has been made in order to help promote their new product, the X-Rite eXact. The X-Rite eXact is X-Rite's newest revolutionary spectrodensitometer designed with productivity in mind. The eXact introduces a wealth of new features into X-Rite's spectrodensitometer lineup. Included in the list of discontinued spectrodensitometers are the following:

    Discontinued Spectro eXact Replacement Model
    X-Rite 518 X-Rite eXact Densitometer
    X-Rite 528 X-Rite eXact Standard
    X-Rite 530 X-Rite eXact Standard

    X-Rite DensiEye 700 X-Rite eXact Densitometer
    X-Rite SpectroEye LT X-Rite eXact Standard
    X-Rite SpectroEye X-Rite eXact Advanced

    If you're the proud owner of one of these devices, or you were planning on buying one, fret not, as X-Rite has already announced that they will be continuing support and service for all of the aforementioned models until 2020 (7 years after the discontinuation date). If you've been debating purchasing one of these devices, however, you may want to look into the X-Rite eXact equivalent. The eXact is the latest hardware from X-Rite, and it boasts quite a few new features including:

    eXact Features

    X-Rite eXact

    • Industry first color touch screen display that simplifies device operation
    • Range of product configurations that scale to meet business needs
    • Color pass/fail reporting against industry standards

    • Embedded Pantone libraries for access to industry-leading color reference standards.
    • Expanded on device storage allows for job presets and color libraries to be saved
    • BestMatch offers a fast way to accurately measure ink colors throughout the press run

    The eXact comes in three different flavors: the densitometer, the standard, and the advanced. If you want to figure out which model is the best fit for you, visit our product listing to see the features of each. With the discontinuation of these spectrodensitometers, there's no better time than now to upgrade to the latest, greatest technology from X-Rite.

With the new collation options available in this software, you can now set your output documents to be either fully assembled (all pages 1-x) or printed in sequential order (all page 1's, all page 2's, etc.). No more sifting through thousands of papers to find what you need.

    Other Included Features

    With the launch of this new software, Caldera has incorporated plenty of other features to assist with the usability of their software. With the new Raster2PDF feature, size limitations for certain raster files (namely TIFF's) have been removed. This improves the performance of raster files by using performance benefits provided by the APPE engine. Also, this new version introduces support for the Japanese language. Not only did Caldera decide to support Japanese in this version of the software, but they are also providing extensive Japanese documentation on their software. These new features are included standard with all new copies of Caldera RIP software.
